The supplied solution to keep the vampire in place did not work for me, keept jumping off enought to crash the machine even if screwed down.
This solution might not be to pretty, but it seems to hold it in place. I can finaly move the machine around.

Hi,
Are the STL files available anywhere?

I am wondering if the latest batch hasn't been sanded as I'm having the same issue. There's got to be a better way of securing it, but the fit on the PLCC is very, very, very tight.

Looks good, there any more detail photos.
How much room is there around the IDE port

I just got my V2 from batch 2 and the socket appears sanded down and it fits on well once screwed down and not had any issued. Its not quite a solid as the Furia was however.

Have you considered making your designs available on Thingiverse for others to use?

Must be differences in different manufacturer's sockets. For me too Furia snapped in perfectly while Vampire is quite loose and does not kind of "snap in".

I resolved my problem by drilling through the HDD leg holes using 2.5mm drill (there's plenty of margin on the PCB) and I bolted the Vampire in using 8mm plastic spacers, M2.5 bolts and plastic washers. It's good fit but in retrospect I should've used M2 bolts, those M2.5's are overkill and I feel bad drilling PCB too much.

Those 3D printed spacers and M1.2 screws (or something like that) provided with Vampire did not seem secure enough for me...

Well, this is a pretty nice mod, thanks for sharing. I'm looking forward to printing one for my 600.
